Aioli Bodega Espanola, Sacramento, CA

Aioli Bodega Espanola Restaurant Review

: Aioli is Sacramento's go-to place for those looking for quality Spanish dishes in an intimate setting. The relaxing outdoor patio, lushly draped with greenery, is one of the city’s best-kept secrets, while the indoor dining room welcomes guests with warm décor and flickering candles. The menu focuses on authentic Spanish recipes and includes a wide selection of tapas as well as full-size entrées. Starters include house-cured salmon, short ribs in orange mole sauce, and grilled chorizo with white beans. Entrées include lamb chops with white wine and garlic, rib-eye with blue cheese and butter, and seafood in garlic tomato sauce. Consider desserts of braised pear with a red-wine reduction, and sponge cake with berries and Spanish sherry.
